After inheriting a box of sheet music from her famous great-grandmother, the young singer, Julia MacAllistair, finds herself on an unexpected journey into the past. As each piece of music propels her into a different time and place, Julia must determine the purpose of her journey and how to return to her present-day life. Along the way, she meets some extraordinary people who teach her about love, loss, and the role of the artist in modern society.
T.E. Scott has spent the last 13 years in New Zealand…a country she lived in as a child…the place she met the boy who would eventually be her husband, 22 years later. After studying both music and English, Scott chose a career teaching English lit. But she never lost her desire to perform music…both classical and jazz. ‘Like my protagonist, Julia, music is a part of my structure…the core of who I am. It constantly plays in my head. It must follow then that music infuses what I write. The whole novel, The Song Journey, moves like a piece of music…from the downbeat to the final note.’
